  1. @zeldatra Hahaha. Oh wow. The same logic can be applied to this: A bullet-proof vest is not knife-proof. Good old chain mail is https://i.redd.it/wniq0txjswg91.jpg

  2. The best play is to have neither a real nor a fake girlfriend. More money for comics and action figures!

  3. Tried watching The Sandman. I ended watching the second episode and my impression is that everything feels, for a lack of a better term, "disjointed". Disjointed from emotion, disjointed from establishing a relatable main character, disjointed from a clear plot. I heard a lot that The Sandman has a cult following and it is highly regarded. So far I cannot agree with that sentiment.

  4. I download things multiple times by accident because I forget I had it in the Downloads folder or I had a copy in the more appropriate folder, which I also forget I had.

  5. @zeldatra Overstimulation... That's what I sometimes feel watching anime. Some try to fill a frame with so much detail and end up distracting at best and unreadable at worst.

  7. Finally I found a way to fix my Windows Update problem. It got stuck and refused to update at all since March of 2021. Because of this I rarely used my desktop PC as it would take 20 minutes to boot undoing the update installation and constantly nagging me to install the update. I had to use the Windows Media Creation Tool and "reinstall" Windows 10 from within Windows 10.

  8. Paper Girls on Amazon Prime is waaaay different to the story in the comics, despite being produced by the writer of the original comics. I can understand why because the original would be waaaaay out of budget. Still strange.

  10. @zeldatra Promotion! Yeah! Hopefully construction won't take forever. When I had to commute about 30km to work I had often construction work on the Autobahn, which made the traffic so bad at rush hour that it added 30 to 45 minutes to the commute and forced me to start work at 6 AM to get around all of this. Even then the construction added 10 minutes to a 15 minute drive (under good circumstances and at about 140km/h and traffic signals.)

  11. Today I was shopping for a new pair of jeans and on my way there I saw a man with a very peculiar printing on his T-shirt. It showed a naked furry anthro wolf in fetish gear and bat wings. I wish I could make a photo to show it. Just for the laughs of bad fashion taste.

  12. As a good software developer I refactored a huge chunk of code and committed it to the DEV branch just before my vacation. As far as I could test everything works as well as it did before but who knows what I didn't catch. So far the new functionalities work too but on the way to the test and production server some errors could occur. I just finished implementing them.

  13. Clone Wars somewhat redeems the prequels. The films are still very clunky and don't stand very well on their own but Clone Wars gives the films a little bit more dimension. Also with a lot of time passed between now and their releases it makes the outrage seem silly. As if Star Wars had excellent writing in the first place. It was always corny and clunky. The original trilogy came out at a time where those things were overlooked pretty easily as the overall quality standard of films was generally quite low in comparison to today. Nostalgia goggles twist the perception of the original trilogy films into something better it is not. Star Wars is a homage to old adventure serials that were quite bad and I adopted that kind of mindset and enjoy the moment. Even Rise of the Skywalker has some charm, harder to swallow but entertaining in a different way.

  14. I don't know but I see it revolving around the internet that people depend on StackOverflow in their daily work to program and to look stuff up. I rarely use StackOverflow. StackOverflow tends to be deliver answers that confuse more or are wildly over-confident with their bad answers. RTFM man. Go to the documentation first.

  15. Gnah.... I had to fix a puncture in my front bicycle tyre. I drove through some glass that was unavoidable the day before. Luckily it only affected the front and not the back. Had to use my last spare hose and needed to order new ones in the case I get another one. I could fix the old hose with a repair kit but a repair kit costs as much as a new hose and doesn't guarantee it'll work. I'm all for repair but in this case it doesn't make sense to waste time and money for a cheap consumable.

  19. Shelling out 130 Eurobucks for a used AC with an external condenser was worth every cent. My apartment never was so freezing cold, especially not with 36°C (97°F) outside. I'd die a horrible sweaty death.

  23. The Ms. Marvel series as a whole was OK-ish. I have read the original comic and the deviations are rubbing me a little bit the wrong way. The spirit is there but it is irksome. Also giving this series only six episodes was odd, as it felt it needed one or two towards the end, where a buildup was missing and the resolution was hollow.

  24. When things starts to look better the world takes it and smashes it to smithereens. My father committed adultery and wants a divorce and wants to still live in the same apartment as my mother until the end of the year. I will probably have to support my mother financially (emotionally for sure), as she is too old to get a job. Also my father turned his asshole attitude up to 11. I strongly consider to turn my back on my father and never to forgive him for being a lying, conniving, selfish dick. He was always somewhat a dick but it could be glossed over back then. Now my eyes are opened.

  26. @scribus It looks damn good but I'm not really in a mood for a brawler. Back in the day I played more Power Rangers The Movie on SNES because I didn't have Turtles in Time (only played as a rental at a friend's house).

  27. I spoiled myself with a game treat and bought the game Tunic. It's a fine game. It is a cross between Zelda and Dark Souls. I had quite some fun but oh boy it is hard. Thankfully there is an accessibility option to make it easy. I used it only two times because my thumbs were already hurting enough and I didn't want to start a boss fight 100 times over. It is best to get into the game blind. I do admit that I looked up stuff at the end of the game because the puzzles to get the true ending are hard as heck and I have a life beyond that game.

  28. @scribus Centaurworld was good. Not my jam but good. Carmen Sandiego was good. Glitch Techs is also very fun. Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts too. Kid Cosmic is a definitive recommendation. Dogs in Space is a good "nothing to see else"-watch.

  29. Finished watching "Dead End Paranormal Park". It was mostly harmless. Not groundbreaking but it is "just a cartoon". LGBTQ representation aside it the show is unfocused and the episodes themselves are lacking the energy to stand on their own. The pace accelerated towards the end but didn't manage to fully have any lasting impact as a whole.

  30. Watched the first two episodes of "Dead End Paranormal Park" on Netflix and it didn't impress me. The show lacks the energy and snappiness to appear to be fun. The characters and voice acting are quite dull. There is a looming feeling that it is a soulless Gravity Falls rip-off. Sure it is a different setting but I cannot get rid off that impression.
